    -Model 10, 3" .38spl
    -Model 13, 3" , full house 158 gr .357 LSWC, or LSWC-HP

    For several years I carried a Colt Diamondback. When I turned fifty I got a .45 semi auto...I've carried the semi for seven years. I've thought about going back to revolver, (I do like revolvers), but for now I'll stick with the semi.

    -S&W 642 snubby, .38 Special +P, Buffalo Bore, Gold Dot, whatever ammo. Prefer 158gr, but I'm not really picky. Buffalo Bore +P stuff is too stout for the gun. This gun is my always gun.

    -S&W 629 Classic, .44 Magnum. Yes, I CCW this. Federal 240 grain Hydra-Shock personal defense loads usually. Good stuff and is downloaded to be easy to control.

    I almost never carry my Colt Gov't Model, which is the only autopistol I own.

    There's a 642 in my pocket now. Sometimes I carry a Taurus 905, a 9mm snubbie. In the cold weather I occasionally carry either my CZ75B or my 1911, but mostly it's a snubnose wheeler.

    rotate carry

    I typically carry either a S&W Airweight 637 or a S&W 36 - both .38

    I rotate them with a Kimber Ultra CDP II .45 for daily carry

    Very interesting poll.
    So far, the results are surprising.

    642 on my right side.
    In town, at the studio,
    it's my only carry.

    In the woods,
    686 in .357M.

    Smith & Wesson 342PD .38, which I had sold to a friend but got back by trading an S&W 360, which I had just long enough to become disillusioned with the exposed hammer and single-action option.

    S&W 642 1 7/8" 38 special.

    A 1911 and a S&W K Frame or Ruger Security/Service/Speed Six will be joining it in the coming years. :)
